I pounded the ground, leaning forwards to go faster. He called from two tail-lengths away, "Nice going, but don't lean too much. You will fall." I sprinted, almost level with him now. I took long, deep breaths, knowing it would help me save energy. I passed him, racing down. I passed a patrol and they gasped at me for being faster than him. He suddenly pulled ahead. "There is a trick to running. You have to measure your pace. " he called and beat me by a mouse-length. "Nice running, apprentice. " he dipped his head slightly. "That is all for today. "
